Ask For Freedom: The Fight For Women's Suffrage - Saturday July 1

Join us for this living history event celebrating the Women's Suffrage Movement and the Suffragists of Bellefontaine Cemetery! The ladies will begin their march at 10:00 am and make their way to Wild Wood Valley for a rally celebrating the words of famous St Louis Suffrage leaders such as Edna Gellhorn, organizer of the 1916 Golden Lane Protest, and Florence Wyman Richardson, the first president of the St. Louis Equal Suffrage League.

After the rally,  guests are free to visit with the ladies of the St Louis Suffrage Movement and learn more about national events 100 years ago.

Space is limited and reservations are required.  To assist with traffic and parking at the event space, we ask that you choose between two arrival times – 9:30 AM or 10:00 AM. Click here to register.
